Alex Morgan has become the greatest women’s soccer player in the game today. Morgan had a rapid rise to success with the U.S. women’s national team but since then she’s matured and gone through ups and downs and overcome injuries to get back to the top of her game scoring goals. In other words, she’s better than she ever was.
In the past World Cup in France she was often kicked and hacked down while trying to hold up the ball, but she persevered and played a somewhat different role for her team.
Right now, Morgan plays with a lot more confidence around the box and has improved her ability to lay the ball off at the right time. Surely her time at Lyon helped boost her confidence and now playing for Orlando she’s scoring on a regular basis.

Quote from Alex Morgan: “I don’t run straight at a constant pace; soccer is always a change of pace and movement.”
And while Morgan is extremely fast, she also knows how to time her runs and angle her runs so she’s harder to cover and defend. She also usually charges forward with the ball, taking defenders on, rather than just cutting back away from the goal. Defenders hate it when you go right at them.
